Same thing's been happening with my version of Mail.app, v. 1.2.5.
Problems started a few days ago when checking my DotMac account. The
mailbox soon went dim. Under the Mailbox Menu, I noticed the DotMac
account was Offline. Restoring it to Online status. That worked for a
day or two. (OSX 10.2.6)
Very soon, my other POP account under Mail went bad, neither sending or
receiving messages. I composed a couple of emails that have been trying
to go out for a day or two. I get annoying pop-up windows from Mail
either asking for my POP account password or suggesting I try another
SMTP server. Just now, oddly enough, I clicked OK to try to send them
out on my cable server's address and "they're gone".
I fired up an older version of Eudora (v. 4.3) ad it works fine, on
This inability to send or receive mail and the worthless popup windows
are exactly the problems I had with the earlier version of Mail.app
(that came with the iBook) that make it totally worthless. When I
upgraded to Jaguar, the new Mail.app, v. 1.2.5 solved those
problems..., for about a year. Now, the problems are back. (Actually, I
lost some mailboxes with the earlier verison of Mail.)
Keychain has been mentioned as a suspect.
